Pit Fighters 1. The Opportunity

Pit Fighters 1. The Opportunity by Rick Griffin 
This short story occurs on the fictitious Island of St. Marten-Cristo, with the rabbit protagonist Paris watching a brawl on television between kangaroo fighter Sultan and Farin the boar in Three Circle Arena. Paris is annoyed by his smothering mother, and thus seeks to get away by signing a contract with the Pit Fighters, where his sexuality, given the masculine orientation of the order, comes into question, and he’s reluctant to fornicate before marriage. Knowing that he starts off as a Pit Fighter in debt, he knows that his first night will be fitful. All in all, this was a short, sweet story with nice illustrations, and nothing sexually explicit, although it somewhat has niche appeal.
